Joseph Willet:: Grasshopper and Laser Cutter Studies

This work is an experimentation using Rhino, Grasshopper and laser-cutting technology to create 3D sculpture. 

First, the model was created using Rhino through poly-surfaces.

After the model has been completed a script was run in Grasshopper to serial slice the object and create 2D curves based on the parameters specified in the code. These 2D curves were then arranged efficiently and labeled appropriately for the laser-cutting software.
Once appropriately labeled the file was programmed to cut on the specified material under specific settings.
 Once laser-cut the individual serial slices were reassembled with PVA Glue.
 Lastly, the Rhino, who was developed using Rhino, Grasshopper, and laser-cutting technology is ground down to revealed his tough exterior hide.
